Growing Innovation and Celebrating the International Year of Family Farming
The Rural Advancement Foundation International (RAFI) and Farm Hack have just launched a collaborative Kickstarter campaign for Growing Innovation, a project to create an open source online library of agricultural innovations and a new book documenting sustainable models developed by farmers.

Watch RAFI’s 2-minute video about the project below:
The Growing Innovation online library will include a searchable database and interactive maps of farm projects, including detailed plans from blueprints to budgets. The book will feature exemplary farm projects from RAFI’s archive, projects that are highly replicable and adaptable to variety of contexts and climates.
RAFI’s staff members expect the new online library will be an especially helpful resource for beginning farmers searching for new ideas for sources of agricultural income, as well as transitioning farmers seeking tested models and stories they can relate to.
The Kickstarter campaign for Growing Innovation ends on March 22, 2014.
